PRACTICAL INFORMATION for you
VISAS AND NECESSARY DOCUMENTS
For the citizens of the European Union a valid personal ID is sufficient. The list of countries, the citizens of which need a valid visa to enter Slovakia, you find on the home page of the Ministry of foreign affairs of SR https://www.mzv.sk/web/en/consular_info/visa or you can get informed directly at the competent Embassy.
VACCINATION AND MEDICAL MEASURES
Before the arrival to Slovakia no special health precautions or medical measures are necessary. We recommend a tick vaccine, especially in case, that you plan to spend a lot of time in the woods. It is also suitable to carry with you some insect repellents, because in areas close to water can be an increased occurrence of gnats.
Except for the usual travel insurance it is necessary to close a mountain search and rescue insurance when mountain hiking.
